Holy Crap, Red said it looked Ronald McDonald'ish.
That can easily be fixed by Putting Hulkamania down the side!

I'd drive it to a "show" in a parking lot, then back home again. Better yet, I'd drive it to a shop to get that suspension painted, then to a show.

Else, I'd take the body and whats left of the frame, and the wheels and tires, and distribute them around to a couple of different projects, and scrap the rest.


but no, I wouldn't "wheel" it. I'd be afraid I'd get stuck or broke.

that steering setup is pretty sketchy, and it looks like its got either a huge block or a huge stack of blocks on the back under maybe a stock spring, those two things alone have a good chance of breaking, if you're gonna lift that high you might as well scrap the TTB and put a d44 under it, and if you're running that big of a tire you better upgrade you shafts etc. its prob also got a 6 banger with some bolt ons, my final evaluation, all show no go

I once said I'll drive anything that has an engine and wheels..... then quickly thought, I guess I'll drive anything even if it doesnt have wheels.

So in this instance, yes I'd wheel the crap out of it. When it breaks I'd just get out and walk away like nothing happened.
